Lithium Titanate Battery - Charge 18,000 Times
Thursday, September 18, 2008
Altair Nanotechnologies Inc. has developed a new battery technology that can out perform every other current chemistry. It’s called Lithium Titanate. This new battery technology utilizes nano-technology to make anodes with an enormous surface area free of carbon. According to Altair Nanotechnologies Inc., these new batteries have a calendar life of 12 years and can be recharged 18,000 times. You can also recharge them above 80% in as little as 10 minutes. Although this may sound too good to be true, Altair is currently working with the U.S. Navy to incorporate this new battery technology into US naval ships and installations.
Last year, Nokia’s chief technologist Yrjö Neuvo said that current batteries are failing to keep up with the demands of increasingly energy demanding features in mobile devices. It sounds like Neuvo won't be hassling with battery problems for much longer because Lithium Titanate batteries will have the highest energy to weight ratio yet. Although Lithium-Ion batteries are not bad at all, it never hurts to upgrade.
Li-ion batteries work by forcing lithium ions from a lithium cobalt oxide cathode to a carbon anode via an electrolyte solution. Altair's Lithium Titanate battery using patented modifications make the anode surface out of lithium titanate nanocrystals, using chemical tricks to give it a surface area of about 100 square metres per gram, compared with 3 square metres per gram for carbon which vastly increases the battery's energy storage and give it the ability to recharge much faster than li-ion batteries. And since the anode is carbon free, the battery avoids thermal runaway or overheating which can cause fires making this battery extremely safe.
The amount of current that can be stored and delivered by this new chemistry is extremely high between 30 and 100 times that of normal li-Ion batteries. This makes it ideally suited for UPS systems, electric-cars, and other high drain applications.
In the near future, this groundbreaking technology will revolutionize the battery industry just as lithium ion battery technology has. Safe, high power, long lasting, and reliable Lithium Titanate is just around the corner.
